As we focus our thoughts on the idea of gratitude, we see the world in a new way, a new light. We are open to Spirit, to new beginnings and new possibilities.
What a healing, transforming perspective!
An attitude of gratitude has such a healing quality, for it helps us release every concern, every condition, every aspect of life to God. As we do, our minds and bodies are healed, our relationships are transformed, and our lives become more peaceful and orderly.
With every thought of gratitude, we deepen our receptivity to the blessings of God. When we are thankful, we are attuned to God and the many ways divine light, life, and love work in and through us.
When we are grateful, we view life from a higher perspective—a sacred perspective.
We see things beyond our human perception, and we gain a new sense that all is well in our lives and in the lives of those we care about.
So how do we develop an attitude of gratitude? We look around us and see the good that fills our lives—even the smallest blessing. We give thanks for our health, our homes, and our families. We give thanks for the friendships we share and the ways in which we can express ourselves through our work, our creativity, our passion for life. We give thanks that we are children of God and that we live in an abundant universe.
With each grateful thought we hold, we develop a more positive attitude about life and open ourselves more fully to the goodness of God.
Each grateful thought we hold is a healing balm that transforms our lives.
